maybelline master kajal liner - pitch black

As you may know, I love a good eyeliner and am always searching for a new colour or style. Working opposite Superdrug does not help me with this as I spend countless lunch breaks in there searching for new makeup, sorry bills! When I saw a poster in their window advertising maybelline's new master kajal eyeliner, I knew I had to try it. I went in and picked up this colour and Oriental Gold but left the blue shade behind as I don't tend to wear a lot of blue on my eyes.

Initially I was intrigued by the nib and the packaging as is it is really simple and looks like a giant marker pen/crayon. The bullet is really light to hold and the curved packaging means it is really easy to handle too.

These eyeliners are extremely soft and creamy in texture and so easy to work with. I found that the length of the nib is slightly hard to manoeuvre, especially if you add a flick to your eyeliner. The packaging says to use the product sideways to avoid sharpening, which really makes adding a flick harder. I have to say I have been a bit naughty and used the point to add my flicks with this, but I'm not too sure how long the point will last with me using it this way if it can't be sharpened.

I found this could be smudged initially, but tends to dry quite quickly so if you like to smudge your liner you need to move fast. Once this is dry, it tends to last a good few hours without smudging at all. Although I found that the true boldness of the black starts to fade slightly after about 4-5 hours and you are left with somewhat of a dark grey colour. I like how using this sideways means you can create thin or thick lines depending on what look you are after too.

I do really like this eyeliner and have been using it everyday since I brought it. If you are a fan of soft eyeliners this makes a great alternative to liquid and isn't too expensive either.
